I'm impressed, Blaine. It must be nice to be that handy.

Thanks guys! It's very warm sounding overall, I personally think it's too warm. Anyways Sean, it plays like a champ, but I think I could have sanded the nut just a little lower. I built it from scrap. Just buying everything separately, Keith.

Nice job, Blaine. Looks good. Was it from a kit? Which one?

Beautiful.  How does it play?

That's a sweet looking strat.  I like the paint job.  It's kinda Eddie Van Halen-ish.  Reminds me of a telecaster I built many years ago.

Tutorship

Hello gentlemen,Following an idea that was present in the book "30 days to a better man" that encourages us to find a tutor, I´d like to propose a discussion about us finding our tutors over here in the AOM community. Perhaps we could find ourselves online tutors since we are all aiming at the same thing: be better men. What do you think?See More

Shirt Style at Work

Hey guys,How do you usually wear collared shirts when at work? For me, I wear no undershirt underneath and I usually unbutton the top two buttons whenever I work then I unbutton the rest when I go home. It's been so hot lately I've been keen on showing as much skin as possible. What's everybody's train of thought regarding this?See More
